Version Scrap - Monumental Scrap

Hi there,

I'm very excited, I'm in Paris this weekend to teach at Version Scrap. I hope I will see a lot of Scrapaholics and creative people, maybe you (?) and I hope I will have time to see a bit of this wonderful city. Hm... I can already feel the "love in the air". :-)

I wrote this post earlier because I think I will be busy this weekend but I want to show you a project I made for Monumantal Scrap. Monumental Scrap is scrapping on mammoth format. On a size of at least 1m x 1m the artists scrapping live their. ;-)

I got an invitation and had the pleasure to scrap BIG. This is a 1m x 1m Canvas and I sprayed, painted with different mixed media techniques, drew and scrapped on it.

I was a little scared when I first saw the huge white surface, but with the first paint this feeling was gone. I quickly felt comfortable. I never thought that I would have so much joy in it. Normally I'm more impatient and want to quickly get a project to the end. But here I had to learn to be patient and enjoy the process. And I did indeed!

The bird was the inspiration to all further elements. 

I decided to draw the Eiffel tower because of the place it will be shown and because I wanted to create a romantic mood and Paris is for love and romance.
The third detail was the street lamp. 
Then I had a really big phase of “don’t know what now”. 
Then I had the feeling to create a place of well-being and what is more obvious to integrate our home and my family. I draw the bigger house with window scene’s. But then I decided to give the house a scrap-part with pattern paper and to create the window scene with tags and some photos. The scrap part I realized with Adhesives by Scrapbook Adhesives by3L®. 

I had a dancing silhouette of my younger daughter, still wating of a layout and I keep her dancing on top of the house. 

We made a special photo shoot to get the other photos. And so everything came to each other. 
I drew other houses and buildings to create the impression of a city and I cut out so many flowers to conceal a wrong perspective of the lantern.

Then I had the idea of the rose petals I saw it once on a postcard and I added all the other details. I also love the water pipe parts and water taps designed by Ingvild Bolme. And of course the street signs are really great and the little bulb fit’s perfectly at the street lamp. It's so easy to create a project with these beautiful embellishments and to give them that certain something.

I’m satisfied with that big canvas and I’m thankful for the invitation to Monumental Scrap, to have made this extraordinary experience.

And I want to say a big THANK YOU to ScrapbookAdhesives by 3L® and Ingvild Bolme and Prima Marketing to support me!
